We, the Community Foundation of the Fox River Valley and the Dunham Foundation, are partnering to conduct a Community Needs Assessment to understand the scope of services provided by nonprofit organizations that we serve in Kane and Kendall counties.

The purpose of this survey is to gather information from our local nonprofit organization partners about the services provided in the communities we serve. We seek to understand the types of services provided, where they are provided, and to whom.  

We appreciate your anonymous feedback to help inform our grantmaking.  We estimate that it will take 10-15 minutes to complete. If you have any questions or would like to provide additional feedback, please contact communityneeds@cffrv.org.
